I really like Theon! But then, I love Th- names. You might like Thane and Theron if Theon isn't sitting right.
Do you think it looks too much like The-on? No.
Do you think it sounds too similar too Leon? Too similar? No. Similar, sure. Having a rare name sound similar to a more common name is a good thing. It makes it approachable.Artemis Willow ☀ Cordelia Avalon ☀ Isabeau Forest ☀ Isadora Nightingale ☀ Lorelei Ondine ☀ Lyra Snow ☀ Pandora Everild ☀ Tabitha Eilonwy ☀ Thisbe Wildrose ☀ Thora Silmarien

As a name, its decent, not bad by any means. I dont think The-on when I look at it or hear it. I think it sounding similar to Leon will only help with pronunciation. If you mean using the two names together though then yes they are too similar.
Personally though, all I can think of is the character from Game of Thrones, who is definitely not a good namesake in my opinion, so that sort of ruins the name for me.
I like Theo, Theron and Thane for alternatives like redwoodfey suggested.
